D Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Rusty Shackleford. Opening reception is Friday Dec 5 from 12-1. This exhibition will be open into February.
“I’m interested in exploring figure ground relationships and notions of image mediation in the hyper-flat pictorial space created by a flatbed scanner. Here, I am not interested in creating beautiful paintings or perfect prints, rather I am interested in crystalizing a frenetic gesture and capturing the quickness of happenstance.”
Born in Montgomery, Al in 1978, Shackleford received his MFA from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2004. He has been a resident at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, the Vermont Studio Center (full fellowship) and Harold Arts. His work has been reviewed in Modern Painters, Beautiful Decay, Flavorpill, NewCity and Art F City. In 2014, Shackleford received the Wynn Newhouse Award. Recent solo exhibitions include Dream Feeder at Root ands Culture in Chicago and Repeater at Cindy Rucker Gallery in NYC. Shackleford’s work was also exhibited at Untitled in Miami. He is represented by Cindy Rucker Gallery in NYC and currently lives and works in Evanston, IL.
D Gallery is located in Philip von Zweck’s office, room 717D, 623 S. Wabash.
